Just two weeks until Valentine’s Day and department stores and home décor are doing a roaring business in all things of any reddish hue or shaped like hearts and arrows.
But decorating for the annual celebration of love needn’t be costly. In fact, your garage and attic (and the waste bin) probably have the raw materials for a unique and charming Valentine’s decorations.
Above is a photo of a handful of junk that I gathered to make a number of junky cupid’s arrows.
A vintage and very worn fireplace brush topped a with a rusty antique cookie cutter are a good start.
Added to a painted grapevine wreath made seasonal with some cuttings of Heather from the garden and I have a Valentine’s wreath that is unlike any other.

A very old paintbrush dressed up with vintage pearls and a vintage pie server.
An antique potato masher and pie server adorn a kitchen sign.
an arrow from vintage yardstick, two vintage schoolroom rulers and an antique coathanger.
In 2015 I made this arrow from scrap wood, a rusty cookie cutter and antique forks
